Vancouver’s beautiful Lions Gate Bridge, also known as “First Narrows” is a suspension bridge that officially opened in 1938. It is one of the main bridges that connects North & West Vancouver to downtown. It can be seen from many different areas in the city and one of the best viewing areas is from the Stanley Park seawall. From the seawall you get a full view from below the bridge and you can even walk beneath it.
Other locations that have great views of the bridge are from Prospect Point in Stanley Park and on the other side of the Burrard Inlet at Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver. If you want a higher viewpoint try the lookout from Cypress Mountain, just a 10 minute drive up the mountain from the Upper Levels highway.
Anytime of day is great to take a look at the bridge, my personal favourite is at dusk just after sunset.
